Positive airway pressure therapy and you

Learn all about System One sleep therapy system options.

What are the different therapies available?


Your sleep specialist will decide on the most appropriate therapy device for you depending on what type of sleep apnea* you have. The most common are:

Fixed CPAP

 

 

Auto CPAP

 

ASV

A fixed-pressure machine delivers a set pressure level all the time. This pressure setting would be provided by your Sleep Specialist, depending on the severity of your Sleep Apnea.

 

Preferred by many, this device varies the pressure given to allow for more comfortable therapy.

To be used for the more complex conditions, including Central Sleep Apnoea and Cheyne-Stokes Respiration (CSR). This is when breathing becomes irregular and there are both deep and shallow breaths being made.

Your sleep apnea therapy solution

System One CPAP devices

System One Auto devices

 

Auto therapy devices sense your needs and provide variable pressures throughout the night. As with the other models, auto therapy devices are equipped with various comfort features such as pressure relief technology.

System One ASV devices

 

Used to treat Central Sleep Apneas, the ASV provides variable pressures throughout the night in order to deliver an effective treatment.

System One device comfort options

 

 

Ramp starting pressure

 

This gives you the opportunity to fall asleep on a low pressure. Over time the pressure will ramp up gently to your prescribed level of pressure. You can choose the period of time over which the pressure gradually increases.

Pressure relief technology

 

This enhances traditional pressure therapy and makes it easier to exhale against the pressure delivered through the mask. This feature makes breathing on the device feel more natural, making it easier for you to adapt to therapy and use it for the long-term.

Humidification

 

Adding a humidifier to your therapy device may help to improve comfort, especially if you have a dry nose or throat. Our sophisticated systems can monitor room temperature and room humidity, and adjust humidification to maintain the selected relative humidity level – even when environmental conditions change. Humidifiers can add heated or cool air to your therapy.

Wireless Modem

 

Your sleep specialist may have given you a wireless modem that attaches to the back of your therapy device. This small accessory lets your sleep specialist know how you’re using your device and allows them to make adjustments to your therapy without you needing to visit the sleep centre.
